In brief: Treatment is ok

Loss of lordosis in cervical spine (neck)usually due to muscle spasm.
In addition to meds prescribed, heat, gentle range of motion exercises for neck and shoulders will help. If pain was preceded by trauma and doesn't look for neck and shoulder range of motion exercises on the web.Resolve over the next week, needs further evaluation.
